On The Passing Of Margaret Reen

Her passing must have reduced many to tears
The woman who lived for a century of years
A good mother to her children and to the late Frank Reen a good wife
In Millstreet Town she had lived for the most of her long life

Some four hundred Seasons of life she had seen
Few live for to be as old as Margaret Reen
Lived through two World Wars when times were quite tough
In life's every challenge one who proved good enough

Since we are mere mortals death is for us all
For each one of us there is a final Fall
What matter most Margaret lived as a good person never harmed anyone
And a whole pile of good in the World she done

To the memory of such a good person respect one must pay
For to help others out she went out of her way
Gone from Millstreet but not forgotten her beautiful face
Without her the Town seems a much poorer place

For each one of us there's a last night and day
By Cashman's Hill in St Mary's her last remains lay
Hope from life that she did have a painless release
The beautiful Margaret may she now rest in peace.
